“The goal of this event is to increase the support of the Downtown Jamestown Farmers Market and connect with the community in a positive way. There are so many great locally grown and crafted products available in our area and I hope this event will inspire our community to incorporate these products into their everyday lives,” stated Christina Breen, Farmers Market Manager.

The market is held weekly on Thursdays from 12-4 pm, June through October  on Cherry Street in downtown Jamestown. The market features a variety of local venders that showcase fresh grown produce, baked goods, gourmet coffee, lunch, artisan goods, and special activities and is sponsored by Univera Healthcare, UPMC Hamot, Jamestown Renaissance Corporation, and the Gebbie Foundation.
